Launchpad and Ubuntu22 Apr 2011 08:03 am

I was looking at a bug with a large number of duplicates the other day and found my self wondering exactly how many duplicates it had. This information actually appears in the page source for the bug report however its a bit hard to read there!

So I wrote a new Launchpad Greasemonkey Script to display the quantity of duplicates in the duplicates portlet.

Modified Duplicates Portlet

I’ve hightlighted the duplicate count in the screenshot to really point out where it is.

I’ve also updated the firefox-lp-improvements PPA which contains a Firefox extension collecting all of the Launchpad Greasemonkey scripts with the new script.

    Launchpad is open source, why are you not fixing these issues in it instead of hacking around it with a Greasemonkey script??!!

    Thanks for posting this. I finally got around to installing the LP scripts and it helps!

    @foo - I’ve actually done a fair bit of development on Launchpad, https://dev.launchpad.net/Contributions, and depending on the feedback on this may end up implementing it there.
